Another week is underway, and that means we get a look at the Nintendo Download Update treats that are on the way in Europe. This week's a bit of a corker, with high-profile DLC, an exceptional Wii download, RPG goodness on 3DS and some promising download-only games. Let's get to the details.

Wii U eShop

Space Hulk (Hoplite Research, €29.95/ £24.99) - This title is based on the Games Workshop board game of the same name, and involves clearing out derelict space ships of hostile alien forces through turn-based strategy. It's a PC port, and we're still working on a review.

Joe's Diner (Joindots, €7.99/ £5.99) - A first-person game with a slightly odd premise; you work 30 night shifts at a remote diner, while your activities somehow influence two feuding dead chieftains that you must help put to rest. Based on screenshots it looks like you complete busy work to maintain the diner, but we'll see how this stacks up in a review.

Wii U Virtual Console

Super Mario Galaxy (Nintendo, €19.99/ £17.99) - Quite rightly regarded as one of the Wii's finest games and a high point in the Super Mario franchise, this wowed audiences in the last generation with its clever stage design, use of gravity and abundance of charm. It's a stone cold classic, and we said as much back in our 2007 Super Mario Galaxy review.

3DS eShop

Slice It! (Aksys Games, €5.48/ £3.98) - Developed by Arc System Works and COM2US, this is a puzzle game that'll suit those with strong visualisation skills. You use the stylus to slice up shapes in order to recreate smaller iterations, which provides plenty of challenge across the promised 'hundreds' of stages. We gave this a recommendation in our Slice It! review.

Glory of Generals: The Pacific (CIRCLE Entertainment, €6.99/ £5.59) - CIRCLE returns with another release on the 3DS eShop, this time providing a follow-up in its wartime (and rather complex) strategy series. This aims to offer plenty of value for money, with over 64 campaigns and 100 generals aiming to school you in battle; unfortunately we think this is a poor effort overall.

3DS Retail Download

The Legend of Legacy (NIS America, €39.99/ £34.99) - If you want a game name that emphasizes the whole point of an RPG storyline, then Legend of Legacy seems like a good call. Developed by FuRyu, with hugely respected industry figures involved such as Tomomi Kobayashi (SaGa series), composer Masashi Hamauzu (SaGa, Final Fantasy XIII), and writer Masato Kato (Chrono Trigger), this title adopts formations in battles and is a campaign that can be tackled through seven perspectives from the core cast. We rated it very highly in our review.
